6:03 am
>> good morning to you. the problem there is ge when they actually did the restructuring and they found these more problems. but delaying dollars during 20 billion of that is pretty significant. if they can find this, there's a lot more under the surface. so was the market. look at the reaction yesterday. >> i hope you're wrong. maria: as well as politics. did everybody catch the press conference yesterday about the president's health? >> yes, yes. >> 30 out of 30. >> stable genius. maria: i was just astounded at the stupidity of the questions. i mean come the dentures? >> the last president was a smoker and a drinker. this one isn't bad at all. he's got to lose 15 pounds and

6:05 am
it was stagnant and it was going down. maria: that's a big number. 50%, kevin kelly. i do think we are seeing this kind of success because of the president's policy. >> at totally because of the policy. the only reason the economy can do well is this monetary policy and fiscal policies are working to the benefit of the people and that is what is happening. every federal reserve governor begging for fiscal policies. the economy was hampered by oppressive rules and regulations including obamacare, see if tv, you name it and all of a sudden a new administration comes in any knoxville policies and federal reserve governors are over the moon. great, we can raise three times next year, maybe even more. maria: is this potential government shut down one of the threats to the market rally just
6:06 am
days to avert a government shutdown set for friday? house sitters propose a funding bill that would fund this for four more weeks while allowing more time for stalled negotiations over what to do on the deferred action for childhood arrivals, the daca program? is this the kind of event should receive event should we see a government shutdown best advantage? >> it will take down the republican party. seven government shut downs since 1976 all have been ideological differences. in no case has there been one party controlled on both sides of congress and the government shutdown. this is suicide for the republican party. maria: i have to push back on that. yesterday was watching the show. i had a cold. i still have a little bit and i heard dagen say look back at all of the government shutdowns we say. the world goes on. not only that, that people increasingly upset with the obstructionism out there. i think they will blame the
6:07 am
democrats. >> i think they will because of that demographic heidi heitkamp, joe manchin. the least nine democratic senators that trump one including five when he won by double digits. the obstructionism by the parts of democrats because they don't want to shut down the government this is the insistence to say we need a clean daca though which makes no sense because that's what we've been trying to do. this is by the republican establishment lost because they were not willing to be comprehensive and focus on the border first and that's what people are fed up and you see a disconnect, almost second sequestration and let congress be the juvenile children and we will be the adults in the market. >> i don't think the market does go down a mahogany impact in one of the reasons why it's only a government does the government shutdown not shutdown. the market is not worried about it. you're also going to see democrats see through to the 30th, which is the state of
6:08 am
the union. they will not want to shut down the government until they see what the president lays out because they have elections in 2018. maria: at the end of the day, the other side, they want the government to shut down. they would like that. >> certain governments don't want to do that here they want to show they are working with this administration to benefit constituents. do you have a name? who was don't work another republican? maria: here's how it plays out. they are viewing that democrats will come along when they need to and work with republicans, state tax reform. whatever they need to do, especially the known incentive for democrats to work with republicans because they were shooting themselves in the foot repeatedly time after time last year. look at health look at health care. it blew up in their faces. no one is pushing back on
6:09 am
democrats, especially constituents. maria: if they don't want to come to the table and do the proper funding for the border wall and make sure that the military is funded properly, i would say the republicans will say fine, the government shuts down. i think people blamed the dems. >> i feel like either party is very good. this is never happen in the history of our country when one party controls everything. you're feeling like the least worst in this case, which is less than people believed in alien abductions. president trump used tough language on immigration during a white house meeting last week though she denied.
6:10 am
a particular vulgarity that turned testy before the senate judiciary committee yesterday. watch this. >> at president trump used this word or a substantially similar word to describe certain countries? >> did he use anything similar to that describing in the conversation was very impassioned. i don't dispute the president was using tough language. others in the room were also using tough language. >> when dick durbin called me at tears rage when i heard about the meeting. for you not to feel that hurt and not paying and dismissed the questions of my colleagues may never be answered with tens of millions of americans are hurting right now because of what they're worried about what happened in the white house that's unacceptable to me.
6:11 am
>> is corey booker not think that everyone knows that was just a performance because he wants to run for president? the way he spoke with the secretary of homeland security to me was unacceptable. as a professional women, were you as outraged as i was? >> with all that man explaining? was incredibly condescending. this is a platform where he wants to lead the resistance against tron. you win in 2018 because they tried this in 2016 of the racially divisive. however you want to slice and dice it the identity politics. in terms of immigration, they want to focus on language and set of policy. what you're doing matters a lot more that the president said in terms of immigration based on substantive merit, that's what
6:12 am
we should focus on. immigrants are on some form of public welfare. basically what's happening is middle-class americans are taking their paychecks and subsidizing immigrants taking more than assistance. that's reality and however however you want to slice it, politics is about the allocation of resources, hard choices and corey booker is just being emotional. maria:'s putting on a show because he wants to run for president. >> you can assign motives to mr. booker. >> it doesn't compare to deeds. in the psalms of cape town, the huge shantytown. last month in the slums of mumbai and go into haiti in a couple months to visit the same sports programs there. people are not doing anything to help these places. i don't agree with the term being asked if that was used

territories. they cracked 26,000. ended the date lower. the markets closed as you see fractionally lower. the futures this morning back in the green. we are expecting a bigger open. after a hundred 45 points right now. as earnings drive the day. it is the season of reported numbers. forty-seven cents per share. revenue was a slight mess. but the company said it took nearly three billion dollars charge to write off the assets due to the tax reform bill. we are waiting for the numbers. ft 100 on a quarter of a%. the cat crunch it's just fractionally lower.
7:02 am
and they are up a quarter of a%. flu season epidemic. the bast number of cases one hospital in california even forced to set up a shift treatment center in the parking lot to deal with the massive overcrowding caused by the flu. the white house dr. said the president trump is in good health. but that wasn't enough for the mainstream media. the outrage coming up from the press looking for any weaknesses and the dr. said the president is in excellent shape. the surprising headwinds. the steel is anything but butterfingers. all of the stories coming up this morning.
7:03 am
i'm so glad that we got to report on bank of america because we will see what happens with their revenues. and their net earnings are to be down 5%. we've have problems in an area and fixed income currencies in commodities. let's see what happens here. it's a diverging result coming from the banks especially titans like goldman sachs as the banks go. coming up this morning. corey lewandowski will join us. judge andrew napolitano is
7:04 am
here. and the ceo of cadre. a big unicorn there. republicans are on a deadlock on the government spending to fix. it comes after house leaders propose a new short-term strategy. conservative republicans are pushing for a deal that includes more funding for the pentagon. the gop leadership does not have the votes to pass a government funding bill. they are putting illegal aliens about the interest of national security. there is not support for the current leadership plan that is proposed. there are two or three options that are out there. well had to head discussions with their leadership. a bipartisan group of lawmakers are set to unveil a
7:05 am
new deal today. mark good to see you. on the ascending bill and how they are tied together. that's what we have this week. a vote on another continuing resolution. they would get us into february to allow more time for that conversation. i think there will be a principles meeting today. to continue conversations to move forward. even though we just heard. that were not in favor of a leadership plan here. keep in mind that we submit a budget to congress in february for 2018 we submit our budget
7:06 am
in february congress should have a bill completed by september 30 at the end of the fiscal year. here we are now still not having a funding bill for 2018 which is why we are continuing to force to do this continued resolution because no one wants a shut down. that hurts federal workers in her defense department. we are going to shut down the government's. unless there is a deal for illegal aliens in place. we don't want to shut down the government. they are supposed to have a funding bill completed by september 30. you're basically being held hostage.
7:07 am
every two weeks. it's not the way to run the government. secretary mattis has continued to go and talk to the republican leaders. we cannot make the necessary planning that i need and we are putting our troops funding in jeopardy. how have he get that communicated to the american people. we recognize the threats that are out there. in terms of national security. we also recognize that the democrats would like the government to shut down because they believe that republicans will be blamed. the reality is that democrats we need 60 votes in the united states and -- united states senate. they are holding american people and the government hostage in order to get the demand.
7:08 am
something that was lost a report that came out that said three out of four terrorist convicted here in the united states. something else was in that report that was missing. that's seven per day. here we are having all of this drama and discussion about what he said and she said. we are trying to fix chain migration. to make sure that the country is safe and secure. seven everyday are apprehended and turned away. that's pretty incredible number actually. we are also facing a group where they would prefer the government to shut down. because they don't want the legislative agenda to get executed. the question to whether or not they really want to shut down or they think they can bluff
7:09 am
to try to get people to cave in to their demands on daca. we will find out this week. they will end up holding together and given more time. this is no way to run a government. they submitted a budget in february of 2017. let's talk about the broader agenda. this is an anniversary week for the president. what are the priorities for 18. i think we are going to take time to review 2017 because of what it was his work in so many ways. it will feature an infrastructure plan that is closer to the state of the union. and look at to require work requirements.
7:10 am
those will continue to be priorities for the administration. we want to make sure our troops are funded. they had been essayed that they want infrastructure reports say that the president will actually present an infrastructure plan during the state of the union do you had plans to tout the infrastructure plan for the state of the union. it is a matter of timing we will continue to head conversations with congress. you should look for the president to unveil that. and all of the decisions to win as many seats as they can and the 2018 elections. that's why the obstruction is probably going to only pick up.
7:11 am
there will be a lot more obstructions and probably the expectations for what we can do legislatively well diminish as the year goes on. to your point democrats well had to make a case they will have to explain why the unemployment is at the lowest point ever. a 17 year low and yet they are stopping the economic plans. what is the biggest pushback in the left. giving the president the money that he is asking for. on the border security keep in mind in 2006 most democrats
7:12 am
voted for the secure defense act. over $40 billion they've been willing to vote for it before. the only difference now is that donald trump is president. there is a recognition of the security needs of the political reasons. how much of the conversation around the reality is that getting in the way in terms of doing a deal or is that just noise coming from the left. i think the conversations yesterday were chordal -- cordial. they go back on the plan in october. we refined that plan a couple weeks ago. they try to get closer to negotiations. her anxious for congress to come back and say this is the
7:13 am
way to end the visa lottery program. in the trade migration which is a program to which the president and they began to secure the border. are you getting at least an acknowledgment that the visa program is ridiculous,? i think there is a growing question that it is ridiculous. let's take the visas and reallocate them. thank you so much for walking us through us all. we will be watching at the developments. mark sure at the white house. the bizarre questions that embarrassed the entire media
7:14 am
for the white house doctors. they're offloading and the candy business for nearly $3 billion. pssst. what? i switched to geico and got more. more savings on car insurance? a-ha. and an award-winning mobile app. that is more. oh, there's more. mobile id cards, emergency roadside service... more technology. i can even add a new driver... ...right from her phone! geico. expect great savings and a whole lot more.
7:15 am
a trip back to the dthe doctor's office, mean just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home with neulasta onpro?
7:16 am
strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. neulasta helps reduce infection risk by boosting your white blood cell count, which strengthens your immune system. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro.

7:23 am
across the country. at least 20 children have died as a result. hospitals in california have begun turning their parking lots into makeshift treatment centers. during this right now as is a family medicine dr. better known as dr. mike. i'm just back. it's not the flu but i was afraid because the flu is serious and dangerous. it's dangerous all seasons actually. we actually forget that the last flu season wasn't so bad. but it doesn't kill. even those who get it and don't die from it they are out of work for a week. it's not a virus that's like the common cold of the goes away after a few days. tamiflu is a great insight viral. that's why i always recommend a senior dr. right away with the symptoms to start. there has been some promise with taking it after the 48
7:24 am
hours. it doesn't kill people thinking over the age of 65. under the age of five. the main question is should people be getting flu shots. did actually work the season. we are guessing at what strains and cultures that will actually be. the flu shot is definitely worth it. there has been a lot of excitement. the way we decide if it's can be good to be effective is we look at australia. there flu shot was only about 10% effective for the current strain that we have. it means actually nothing to that regular person but to scientists we get excited about it. and what we found is the current flu shot is about 30% effective. it will tone down your symptoms and shorten the course. and we will see if you yearly
7:25 am
get flu shots will be even more effective. i felt like that affected my immune system. there is a couple of things that come from that. the humidity is lower so germs hang around longer. everyone is seen inside. we are closer together. most talk about the president's health. the commander in chief is in good health but that was not enough for the mainstream media. watch this charade. are you looking at dementia like that seems like it's just
7:26 am
shy of obesity. recently the president appeared to slur his words. i could not believe this yesterday. i tweeted out in the middle of it no words. i was embarrassed for my industry. they were upset that the president that there wasn't anything bad to report. the dr. said a lifetime of no alcohol or tobacco really has served him incredibly well. they are obsessed. they think the president's neck is second to make it through the first term. they have all of the scenarios that they think he won't make it. and that he will be impeached
7:27 am
because of his health. that's why they're doing this. i see a lot of people critiquing someone talk before they know exactly what's going on. in order to know anything about the mental health if to sit down with them. to see some journalists and doctors come on and say i know this person has asked illness. you are proving that you don't follow the medical process. it's hard to measure mental health. you have to spend time they have to be your patient or you're just making stuff up. have you ever seen anything like that. president obama i was a huge smoker there was no comments about it.
7:28 am
have you ever seen anything like that yesterday. it was extraordinary. present shop might be one of the most sane presidents we've head. ever since he won they have this agenda where they want to obstruct in every way possible. congratulations on excellent health. coming up the tree to dispute. the department of justice go straight to the supreme court to block present shop the very latest in the legal battle. is it time for tech titans trash -- trust buster. tree and eight
